Advising and Supporting Teachers

Date Published

Product description

This book is in two parts. The first part looks at the processes of giving advice and the second part consists of a range of tasks for the advisor to consider. The main purpose of the book is to provide an opportunity for everyone engaged in the training arena to reflect on the most effective methods for giving feedback and support to teachers. The issues covered in this book include: when and why advisors advise, listening to the whole teacher including the non-verbal messages, talking to the teacher so there are no misunderstandings, raising consciousness, cultural sensitivity when advising in international contexts, and developing new understanding through discussion. This book will be of particular interest to everyone responsible for advising teachers including teaching practice supervisors, mentors, INSET tutors, state education inspectors, Directors of Studies running teacher appraisal and induction programmes and teachers working together as 'critical friends' in more informal teacher development.

Key features

  • The book is based on international experience of training and mentoring.
  • Discusses issues on giving advice before providing tasks to examine the issues and develop relevant skills.
  • The book encourages a reflective approach which can be used in a wide range of teaching contexts.
